Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero and Lieutenant Governor Josh Tenorio are hosting a wave to express their gratitude for Guam’s hospital workers on the opening of Hospital Week tomorrow, Monday, May 9, 2022, at 4:30 p.m. at the ITC intersection in Tamuning.
“Hospitals serve as the vessels of life in our community, and their physicians, nurses, and support staff as the beating hearts of lifesaving operations and critical care,” said Governor Leon Guerrero. “On Guam, we are blessed to have three hospitals and their compassionate forces serving our people in their time of need. They all have our thanks and respect every day, but this week we pay special tribute to the unyielding strength of our dedicated men and women at the Guam Memorial Hospital, Guam Regional Medical City, and U.S. Naval Hospital Guam.”
“In moments where people are most vulnerable and most worried, hospital workers are there doing difficult and demanding work, holding our hands, offering voices of calm, and comforting glances that say things will be okay,” said Lt. Governor Tenorio. “Through long shifts and late nights, they are saving lives, creating solace, and helping to make us a better island. This week, we honor the heart and soul they pour into their professions, and we urge our island to join us.”
